When I drop '--macbin' from the mkisofs invocation, the latter runs to
completion. I'll have to burn a CDROM to see what a real Mac makes of
The man page is terse on this ("Look for MacBinary Macintosh files");
the code is convoluted, but appears to set type and creator for
macbinary files - which would change files written to the image, and
mkisofs may well trip over its own shoelaces here.
If all that is lost is the proper hfs type for macbinary files, a
workaround could be to drop --macbin, and add a note to the mac68k
specific part of INSTALL that the respective files need to be
dragged&dropped onto an unpacker to be accessed.
